Testimonials of previous participants

‘The summer school has been wonderful. The courses were accessible, yet challenging and I learned a great deal. I feel that the connections that I have made have been wonderful and I am happy to be a part of this broader network of female political scientists.’

‘[I have benefited from the Summer School] in several ways: first, I could realize my project, second I gained new knowledge and a starting point in methods I did not knew before, third this it was a very encouraging atmosphere with great participants, fourth due to this atmosphere I felt encouraged to ask questions that I did not ask before in methods classes. Finally: being taught and getting help by the experts in the field.’

‘[The Summer School provided] practical knowledge in terms of coding, better understanding of the underlying logic of different R packages, meeting with peers and team building (the atmosphere in the group was very inclusive and positive).’
